Runyon Canyon

Take a long hike up the mountain on your way to see the famous Hollywood sign. While lots of people drive to see the sign, the walk is scenic and will be fun for any outdoors enthusiast. Runyon Canyon runs from Hollywood to Mulholland Drive and has two sides to it, one paved and one rocky. The rocky side is much more difficult and gives you the option of trying something harder to push yourself.
